This message, the final message in this series on Philippians, is about summarizing the book and how we can put to use the principles expounded in Philippians "where the rubber meets the road" so to say. Here is where we apply what the apostle Paul has so authorizatively exhorted the Philippian church to do to live out Christ in their every day lives. Here is the great insight into the mind of Christ, the exhortation to trust God to provide whatever we need to live out the Christian life. Here is the powerful call to unity within the body and to put personal differences aside. This message was presented by Craig Miller, senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville, Ohio Sunday May 3, 2015.
The Apostle Paul finishes this last section of his letter to the Philippians by thanking them for their supporting him in his ministry and what this support actually means--credit accrued before God. He also tells them what they have supplied is enough to meet his needs and he has learned contentment no matter the circumstances. He further encourages them to rely on God for all their needs. His supply is inexhaustible. This message was presented by Craig Miller, senior pastor of Grace Baptist Church in Cedarville, Ohio Sunday, April 26, 2015.
After reminding the believers in Philippi to have the right perspective in dealing with the circumstances in their lives, to have the right equipping in dealing with selfishness, the right goal in dealing with the things that come into our lives (both good and bad), now the apostle Paul tells them to have the right equipping to deal with anxiety. He wants the believers to Stand Firm in their lives and witness for Jesus to their friends and loved ones--good advice for us today!

Another of many well-known passages in the Book of Philippians is 3:12-4:1 where the Apostle Paul tells the church in Philippi that he is focused on Jesus Christ and on knowing Him. He assures the church that he has not yet "arrived" but is still learning--even after many years serving the Lord Jesus Christ.

You've heard of the "Three R's". Well, these are "The Four R's" of the Apostle Paul to the Philippians: rejoice, reject, recognize and righteousness. Philippi had no Jewish presence when Paul arrived but he knew it wouldn't be long before there would be those who would come after him with the false idea that they had to become Jewish in order to truly be saved.
